Study: Pipeline plan poses no significant impact on Trumbull wildlife area

Posted: Updated:

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - A draft finding by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers concludes that a proposed pipeline project will have no significant environmental effects in the vicinity of the Shenango Wildlife Area in Trumbull county.

An Ohio Department of Natural resources map shows the wildlife area stretching through Kinsman and Vernon Townships.

The draft Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) document is related to the Halcon Field Services SRC Pipeline Project.

The proposed project includes the installation of a 16-inch gathering pipeline 2,867 feet beneath federal land by method of horizontal direction drilling into order to connect Halcon's Brugler Well Pad in Trumbull County and a proposed natural gas gathering system in Mercer County, Pa. 

Upon completion of the proposed project, the gathering line will serve to transport natural gas that is extracted within the region.

To comply with the National Environmental Policy Act the Army Corps of Engineers prepared an environmental assessment for this project.

According to a news release from the Corps of Engineers, the study concluded that the action had no significant adverse impacts to natural and cultural resources.

The draft FONSI will be available for a 30-day review period beginning Sept. 10 at the Warren-Trumbull County Public Library, 444 Mahoning Ave. N.W., Warren, Ohio  44483.  The library reference desk can be reached at (330) 399-8807 ext. 109.

The draft FONSI will also be available online at www.lrp.usace.army.mil.
